Long time reader, first time writer. I started a 5 gallon strawberry/ grape batch right at a week ago. I was doing some reading on aerating the batch while in primary and then once in secondary restarting the yeast. For one, I was waiting on some supplies to show up in the mail. Now that its in secondary and I added a little bit of energizer and nutrient and half cup of sugar, the yeast is taking off like I've never seen before. Should I rack it again after it settles down or should I just leave it in secondary and clarify?

Rack once again when it settles down. I never aerate or add anything to secondary- as the point is to let it finish and clear, not restart fermentation. Once it clears up a bit, and settles down, and you have noticeable lees, it needs to be racked off of the lees.

This stuff is yummy and will probably only get better. I started a batch at the beginning of Jan. 2012. When my friends and I tried it a few weeks ago, it had a very strong alcohol taste. A few weeks later it mellowed nicely! It has been a hit with friends. I can't wait for another month or so to see how it tastes. It's nothing fancy, but it's still nice

I started another batch of Welch's White Grape yesterday! Can't wait

I'm curious if anyone has a picture of this once it's cleared? Mine's been in secondary for a week or so and it's still really opaque, even though I added pectic enzyme in the beginning (only let it sit for about 8 hours before pitching yeast, I was impatient... hope this won't reduce the likelihood of clearing)

It seems from your posts that you only started it 2 weeks ago, right? Impatient is right, ha
The OP has it 5+ weeks to finish.

i usually pitch the yeast right away, it takes alittle longer to get going but takes off none the less. i agree with midfielder tho, if it's only been a couple weeks i'd wait for it to clear or cold crash it or superclear it

ok so, here are the ingredients in my frozen welch's concentrates, please let me know if these ones will still work, thanks.

purple grape:
glucose-fructose
grape juice
water
sugar
concentrated grape juice
citric acid
natural flavour
ascorbic acid
vitamin C
colour


white grape:
glucose-fructose
white grape juice
sugar
water
concentrated white grape juice
citric acid
sodium citrate
ascorbic acid
vitamin C
*CONTAINS SULFITING AGENTS* this is in bold

hopefully these will still work, as they are the ONLY grape juices I can find in and around my area in southern Ontario

thanks for any help everyone.

Your purple will be fine as is your white should be good just give it a day or two before pitching yeast. I remember reading on another winemakingtalk site that a member has made many with sulfites and sorbates and they just took a bit longer to take off. Ymmv
